Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-i)
Introducing CBT-i: Empowering You for Restful Nights
When it comes to conquering sleep issues, one treatment stands out as the primary psychological solution: evidence-based CBT-i, which stands for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy for Insomnia.
Endorsed by the esteemed National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE), CBT-i has proven to be equally, if not more, effective than many sleep medications.
Now, let's explore how you can access CBT-i and discover the transformative power it holds.

As a dedicated hypnotherapist and psychotherapist, I work closely with my clients, providing personalised guidance to unravel the various factors that might have triggered their sleep issues. Together, we embark on a comprehensive CBT-i programme tailored to their unique needs.
CBT-i encompasses a few key aspects, all tackled gradually, ensuring a holistic approach to better sleep. Let's explore these essential elements!
